Do High Earnings Compromise Christian Values?

In a recent report, a debate erupted over whether someone that was earning vast amounts of money from their profession would have their Christian values compromised. This can after it was revealed that 22-year-old Brazilian footballer, Neymar da Silva Santos Junior, would be earning around half a million dollars a week at Paris Saint Germain.

The footballer is a renowned Christian and once stated that life could only make sense if our highest priority was to serve God. However, some questioned how he could justify earning such a large amount of money while still maintaining high Christian values.

5 Smart Reasons Why You Should Buy a Used Car

The vehicle industry is certainly one of the most profitable industries in the world. The reason is that everyone needs to get to where they want to go without waiting on transit or a ride from a friend. Vehicle ownership gives people the freedom of unobstructed movement and that is quite important for life. Too many people however seem to believe that t new vehicle is the answer. This is certainly not true. The used cars on the market today are just as good, if not better than new ones and here are just a few reasons why.

1. Value – When purchasing a car, you want to get the full value of the vehicle, but when buying a new car, the value immediately decreases by up to 20% once the vehicle has been driven off the lot. That fact alone should prove that a used car can hold its value longer than a new one.

2. Better Quality – It might seem a little strange to think that a used car is of better quality than a new one, but it is important to remember that many new cars are testing out new technologies. Where it may seem as though it is best to have the new technology as soon as it comes to light, there are often bugs in the system that have not yet been worked out. By purchasing a used car, those issues have likely already been resolved in the model and you can choose a model that did not have any standard technical issues to begin with and make an educated decision rather than just merely on technology and looks.

Gold Bracelets To Choose From!

A gold bracelet is a timeless piece of jewellery that you can wear over again with a variety of outfits and to many different social events. You could also wear it every day. But which one would you choose? Gold bracelets for men seems like a pretty basic piece of jewellery to choose when buying one, however these days with all the different styles and designs available, choosing the right one for yourself or someone else could seem tricky and time consuming. It really is just a matter of choosing the gold purity, style, design and gold color.

The purity of a gold bracelet is measured in carats. The higher is the value in carats, the higher the value of the bracelet. There are variations in gold carats from 1 carat up to 24 carats which is considered pure gold. The most common carats used for gold jewellery are 9K, 10K, 14K, 18K and 24K. We would recommend sticking to 9K-18K gold for your bracelet, as 24K can be a bit too flexible and if pressed too hard it can change shape and get dints.

There are innumerable styles and design types online to choose from along with gold bracelet price. The choice you make should really reflect your tastes, and will depend on when you'll be wearing your gold bracelet and how often you'll be wearing it. Another feature to think about is whether you'll choose a fashionable bracelet or a bracelet with a classic style.

There are styles with unique chain links and some that have charms attached. They also come in designs with large flat surfaces that have patterns on them or shiny surfaces that have the potential to be imprinted. A great gold bracelet design to give as a gift is a cuff as it generally fits anyone and you don't need to know the size of the wearer's wrist.

There are gold plated and solid gold bracelets. The solid ones are heavier than other types, but most people get used to the extra weight and after a short while don't notice it anymore. When it comes to choosing the color of your gold bracelet, well you're on your own. This comes down to personal taste.

Some people love white gold and others don't as they find people confuse it with sterling silver. There are different colors of gold to choose from, the most common being yellow gold, white gold and rose gold. Some designer jewellery online also offer green gold and black gold - these colors might be for the more bold types.

Your choice of gold bracelet should really show up your personality or the wearer's personality. It is also a good idea to think about when the bracelet is going to be worn, and if it will be worn often then it would be a good idea to choose one that's made of solid gold.
